Colorado Library Settles

(AgapePress) - A Christian law firm has settled a dispute with a Colorado library that rejected an application to use a community meeting room.

Earlier this year, Florida-based Liberty Counsel applied to use the community room of the Woodland Park Library near Denver for an informative meeting on the biblical perspective of marriage and homosexuality. The application also explained that the meeting would include prayer and scripture reading.

However, the request was rejected because of a standing policy that says meetings that are religious or political in nature must also present a balanced viewpoint. The library director, says Liberty Counsel, stated that someone who could present an opposing viewpoint on marriage would have to be invited to the meeting.
